Trials Fusion Review | Face(plant) Piles Of Trials With Smiles

Platforms: PC | PS4 | Xbox One (reviewed)

Developer: RedLynx

Publisher: Ubisoft

Trials is as punishing and perfect as ever. It's a game of ludicrous excess and controlled restraint, as you scream over a ludicrous gravity-defying jump one moment and deftly feather the throttle to make it across a nasty gauntlet of overhangs the next. The interplay between speed, power, weight, balance, gravity and physics is one again spot-on, challenging us to excel through skill and perseverance, all while desperately attempting to shave miliseconds off our par time, beat our ghost and humiliate our friends.

Trials Fusion should be everything we want from a Trials sequel, then, but some new features and window dressing deserve a closer look.

Trials Fusion Review | Face(plant) Piles Of Trials With Smiles

We're in the future now, and Trials Fusion won't let you forget it. From the first second you boot it up, an annoyingly brain-worming theme song proudly proclaims "welcome to the future! Man! Machine! The futuuuuuuuuure!" while displaying a shiny armour-clad rider atop a slick skyscraper. It'd be a great excuse to introduce some futuristic new technology, but no, it basically boils down to a somewhat forgettable storyline involving two AIs (which features a few fun one-liners that you'll hear repeated ad nauseam each time you restart a checkpoint) and a vibrant colourful new aesthetic to punch up the tracks. We've come a long way since Trials HD's uninspiring collection of brown crates and grey pipes.

Missed yesterday's South Park: Stick of Truth for £18.50 deal? Amazon's got you covered

South Park: The Stick Of Truth | Amazon | £18.50
Price ComparisonReview

Don't worry if you missed yesterday's South Park: Stick of Truth deal? Tesco might have run out of stock, but Amazon are firing on all cylinders and have kept the dream alive...on PS3 anyway. If you've got Sony's last-gen box of tricks, you can still snap up the game for £18.50, and you really should. Because it's hilarious and that preice is damn cheap for a game that only released a couple of weeks back. Good spot oliverreed!

Price ComparisonReview

Hot. HOT. I'm being super cereal right now: this deal is almost too sizzling to handle, since Tesco Direct are currently selling the recently-released South Park RPG for £18.50 including free home delivery. It's an immense saving on what turned out to be a genuinely impressive -- if intentionally (brilliantly) offensive game. Thanks to johnwilliamson47 @ HUKD for this fantastic spot!

"We know how to find you" - Watch Dogs teaser foreshadows our digital shadow

PC Specs & mandatory Uplay also announced

We all leave a digital footprint as we go about our daily lives, from social networks to credit card purchases, CCTV cameras and Oyster Cards. Something that vigilante hacker Aiden Pearce will be able to co-opt to devastating advantage in Watch Dogs when it releases this summer. The hype train is once again picking up speed following the recent delay, and the latest trailer gives us a flavour for the sort of information we'll be able to use during the hac

On the PC side of things, we've got some good and bad news. The specs have been revealed... but I'm afraid that you'll also have to use a certain much-maligned digital platform to play it.

Rayman Legends is a fantastic platformer and one of the finest games of the last generation, absolutely Though the new-gen version doesn't have much to improve upon, seeing as it already looks amazing at 1080/60 on Xbox 360 and PS3, it's still well worth playing if you missed it the first time around. GAME are currently retailing at £19.99, saving you £4 vs the nearest contenders and undercutting the RRP by a tenner.

If ye be in search of booty, look no further than Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag's Buccaneer Edition. This great big box includes a figurine, OST, lithographs, artbook and DLC, and cost £80 at launch, but GAME have slashed it down to £29.99 on Xbox 360. Only apply if you're a huge fan of merch, though, otherwise pick up a copy of the game for considerably less. Thanks to valkynaz @ HUKD!

Price ComparisonReview

South Park: The Stick Of Truth is one of the best licensed games ever made: retaining the anarchic spirit of the source material while still being a good game in its own right. Utterly irreverent, frequently disgusting and wonderfully offensive, it's well worth checking out - and you can save a little extra by getting a Steam code from CDKeys.com.

To knock the extra quid off, you'll need to 'like' CDKeys.com on Facebook and receive their latest voucher code. As far as I know you can just 'unlike' them and repeat the process if you've used it already. Thanks to theg @ HUKD!

Far Cry 3 Review

Far Cry 3 is an outstanding game, and you can currently buy it over on GamersGate for the low price of £3.75, we've seen it go a little lower but it's still a decent price for a game that'll gift hours and hours of awesome, open world, jungle-based action.

However, spend a little more for the Deluxe version and you'll save yourself several quid on a bundle that includes the full game as well as all of the pre-order DLC -- six extra missions across two DLC packs, exclusive weapons and in-game items, and the game's soundtrack.

Rayman Legends is utterly fantastic... and though the Kung Foot multiplayer minigame is worth the price of admission on home consoles, it feels right at home on Vita.

"Abstergo are trying to force our hand"

Spurred into taking early action by this week's massive leaks, Ubisoft have decided to turn rumour into reality. Assassin's Creed: Unity is indeed headed to next-gen consoles, set in Paris during the French revolution.

Next-gen Assassin's Creed set during French Revolution, says leaked screenshots

Roll up, roll up, for a great big steaming pile of leaks fresh from the rumour mill. Kotaku, as per usual, have thrown an absolute sizzler onto the flames by revealing some leaked screenshots of what appears to be this year's Assassin's Creed game. Sources claim that Assassin's Creed: Unity (probably a working title) is set during the French revolution and features a retooled parkour system, starring an assassin called Arno.

Child Of Light Deluxe Edition | Amazon PC/PS3 & PS4 | £15.99 (save £0.86 vs ShopTo)
Child Of Light hands-on preview

Child Of Light is halfway between a fairytale poem, inquisitive platformer and turn-based JRPG; and is absolutely shaping up to be a game to be reckoned with. Though a digital download, many retailers are selling a deluxe edition, which contains a download code alongside some merch. Amazon's £15.99 price is unlikely to be much more expensive than the base game, making this a bit of a steal. Thanks to Jas10 @ HUKD!

I'm reliably informed that the PS3 and PS4 version is playable across either or both platforms.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a self-contained bundle of 80s awesomeness, taking everything we loved about Far Cry 3 and making it more radical than we'd ever dreamed. Michael Biehn, D&D references, Long Tall Sally and epic laser dinosaurs make this an essential play for shooter fans - and an absolute steal at £2.99. Thanks to godsmote @ HUKD!

Avast, Assassin's Creed IV gets GOTY Edition

Shiver me timbers and batten down the hatches, me hearties, and other vaguely piratical nonsense. If you've yet to spend any pieces of eight on Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, you'll soon be able to reap the benefits, since Ubisoft have confirmed a DLC-stuffed GOTY edition headed to PC and new-gen platforms. That seems to cost an astonishing £59.99.

In all honesty, we're not entirely convinced that all the DLC is worth buying in the first place, but you can be the judge of that below.

Assassin’s Creed III | The Game Collection | £5.95
Wii U price comparison | ReviewWii U Version Addendum

Assassin's Creed III is the star of The Game Collection's latest flash sale, allowing Wii U owners to pick up a copy for a shade under six quid. It's a decent discount and an impressive saving, though in my personal opinion, this is the weakest game in the series by a considerable margin. You're probably better off going straight to the salty swashbuckling of Black Flag, but if you've got a hole in your collection, this is easily the cheapest way to fill it.

South Park: The Stick of Truth Gameplay - Randy's Alien Adventure (EU Edition)

Rejoice! It's South Park Day folks! Yes, The Stick of Truth releases today here in the UK and we've got another little gameplay video for you. This time Matt's new kid on the block gets kidnapped by aliens, all of whom appear to be obsessed with inserting things into various human orifices. But there's no time to think about that! Poor Randy has been taken as well, and we have to save the moustachioed legend before he's reamed to death.

Not that we get to see such things, of course. We're European, after all; which means our eyes would explode if we witnessed such cartoon horrors. Thankfully Ubisoft censored the truly awful bits to save our retinas from spontaneous combustion. To be honest, that might be a mercy.

Still, definitely consider this NSFW. Thank God It's Friday!

PS4 gets extra content, Wii U gets extra delays

About time too. Just when our excitement for Watch Dogs reached critical mass, having previewed a production buildinterviewed the developers and even tested out the companion app, Ubisoft delayed their anticipated hacking sandbox at the eleventh hour. Then went dark.

The waiting began. The conjecture and concerns deepened. But now we can start to ramp back into hype mode, because Watch Dogs has been officially dated by way of a new trailer! So long as you don't want to buy it on Wii U, that is.

Xbox Live Deal Of The Week delivers Ubisoft bargains

Xbox Live Gold members can get some tasty discounts on Ubisoft games this week, with some major savings to be had. As far as I'm concerned, Call Of Juarez: Gunslinger is an essential purchase at £2.49 - I adored every rootin' tootin' second of it. Scott Pilgrim vs The World and I Am Alive also both come highly recommended - one for fans of bleak hopeless improvised survival, the other a 16-bit brawling masterpiece that takes you to retro chiptune heaven. See if you can guess which is which.

Here are the marketplace links including 'odd one out' Call Of Duty: Ghosts, which isn't much of a deal since ShopTo are retailing at £23.86.

*Not a saving! Can be found significantly cheaper elsewhere.
